New loan Signing

Forest are set to sign Brighton defender Joel Lynch on a month's loan.

Lynch, who will be 21 next week, can operate at full back or in the centre of the back four and graduated through Brighton's youth set-up.

He was in the side that reached the quarter finals of the FA Youth Cup. The former England Youth international, who made his Brighton debut in 2006, has
figured twice as a substitute this season and in total has made 88 appearances for the Seagulls.

Forest boss Colin Calderwood said: "He's a player I have looked at in the past and this gives us a good opportunity to have a look at him for a month."
